Excellent tour of the area. The tour guide took a great photo of our group at the best spot which included the city and the ship. Great photo memory. Enjoyed the stop at the Square and time to just walk around.

First off our guide was Rodrigo and he did a great job. He did an awesome job discussing the city, its history and the current events shaping Chile. Chile was having some issues and Rodrigo did a great job explaining what was happening while remaining objective. We really feel that we walked away with a better understanding of the city and country. He also recommended a perfect lunch spot overlooking the town square - awesome lunch!

The tour consisted of driving around Punta Arenas. The tour guide was excellent and avoided crowded areas by modifying the tour on the go. We still saw all that was planned just in a different order. She did an excellent speaking tour of the main square and the museum. I would recommend this tour.

Good tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and first gave us the history of the area right back to the time of the explorers and how the area developed into what it is today. Variety of stops, shoreline viewpoint, museum, and town square. Tour gave us a good overview.

We definitely saw the highlights of Puenta Arenas. The guide knew the history of the area very well and showed us on a large map where the various historical and geographical sites were located. He took us up to a vista above the city and showed us islands and channels in the distance that gave us a good sense of how exploration of this area developed. The museum tour covered the important events that occurred here and we ended our tour in the lovely park where the statue of Magellan stands accompanied to beautiful flute-like tunes played by a local musician. The waterfront stopover provided us with an opportunity to get some good photos of the boat sculpture and the Puenta Arenas welcome sign. We were very pleased with our visit there.

This tour took us to a hilltop view of the city & cruise ship & street vendors from Peru. We had a wonderful tour of an incredible museum with our tour guide. I would have liked to had a stop at the cemetery instead of just a driveby.

A young fellow guide was very energetic! He gave us good service. He even went out of his way to take passengers back to the ship who were tired from the river cruise and walking in the forest and then took us back to the town for a tour we appreciated his efforts! We appreciated the lower price of the trip compared to the ship excursion offering

you get to see all the places mentioned in the literature. brief stops to get photos & explanations of where you are & what is going on. be aware that punta arenas is VERY WINDY!!! so much so that our ship stopped tendering into port early in the AM, the port closed because of rough seas [fairly common occurrence]. ladies could have used a little more shopping info from the guide.

Mario, the tour guide was super. He had vast knowledge about the places we places we saw. Our trip to the museum was especially interesting because he shared stories about many of the exhibits. He could answer our questions and spoke clearly. We learned a lot about the city Since English is not as common in south America as in other tourist destinations, we were very happy with Mario who spoke perfect English.

A pre-Panama Canal important port of call, a well led tour guided by a knowledgeable young guide with good mastery of Sheakspear language was enjoyed by visitors in a relaxed atmosphere. The tour included a museum which provided a good overview of local hisrory as well as natural history. Stops at a lookout, main historical square and parc provided photography and souvenir shopping opportunities. Relaxed tour in relaxed atmosphere.

Punta Arenas is a lovely little city with lots of history. It's colorful buildings give the city a wonderful charm and a welcoming feeling. It is an excellent way to spend a few hours off the cruise ship. While there make time to visit one of the local restaurants. If you like seafood, visit "Restaurant Vistamar" located in the building Mecado del Punta Aranas across from the cruse ship terminal. The food was fabulous!

Punta Arenas--Excellent Tour
February 07, 2017
This was an excellent tour as we saw many of the highlights including kissing the toe of the statue at Plaza de Armas Munor Gamero. The panoramic view from Cerro Mirador was spectacular and we saw the Celebrity Infinity in the port. The only negative thing was that there was one couple who only spoke spanish so our tour guide had to spend half the time explaining in spanish. The tour should indicate english or spanish language.

Punta Arenas history and lovely views
February 17, 2016
This bus tour took us up to the heights of the city to look down on it and the port. Great views. We then visited a museum full of history on the whole southern cone of Chile -- complete with taxidermy of local species, history of the native peoples and their way of life, and the role Punta Arenas plays as jumping off point for the Antarctic. We then drove to the city square and learned more about the history of its founders, their homes (as seen from outside), and the role Punta Arenas played in the development of southern Latin America. We shopped at an open air market, went quickly into the cathedral and heard a visiting Brazilian drumline playing. Very nice outing in this important city.
